Fast Aid specialise in training around the subject of conflict management, challenging behaviour , aggression and physical intervention.
We work with schools, foster agencies, children’s homes, adult learning disability, mental health, elderly residential, nursing and dementia units, housing associations, drug, alcohol and homeless charities and many more to provide high quality and highly effective training in managing difficult behaviours to their staff.
Courses range from basic awareness courses in challenging behaviour to high level physical intervention skills. All courses are backed by the National Federation for Personal Safety (NFPS).
We are firm believers that physical intervention is a last resort, so all of our courses are guided by a Model of managing behaviours.
Based on the principles of positive behavioural support, conflict management, de-escalation, pro-active and responsive strategies and staged physical response methods. We aim to encourage best practice outcomes for dealing with behaviour that challenges in the workplace.
We tailor our courses to the sector in which you work and we offer information regarding what level of training you may require.
- The private security sector
- SIA training
- Care Homes
- Supermarkets & many more!
Also, our training is underpinned by very thorough risk assessments and every part of our training works around a risk assessment analogy. And that is actually reviewed and it’s inspected and audited by health and safety professionals on a regular basis.
This training has been medically reviewed and legally audited by one of the preferred Home Office medical specialists. He reviews restraint programmes all over the UK; so you are in safe hands!
Now, if you’re looking to work with children and young people, the new guidance states that the training you provide and the techniques that you’re going to be offering must be fit for purpose with children and young people and there must be a medical review to support that.
